I use a fleece cap, but I haven't really needed to go down to low with my set up either.

Cool weather, a fleece hat that covers my ears.
A littler cooler to cold, a fleece balaclava.
A little colder to downright brrrr, a down hat or combination with fleece balaclava. (My nose gets cold easily)Oct 15, 2007 at 11:58 am #1405522

I've used my quilt to about the freezing point and used a fleece hat when I did. All my other trips have just been cool weather and I've worn a wool beanie then.

Temps above freezing: possumdown hat and/or a powerstretch balaclava (3 oz for both).
Below freezing: I swap my cocoon pullover for the cocoon hoody, usually bringing the hat and balaclava along too.Oct 15, 2007 at 1:39 pm #1405536

down to near freezing I normally use a polarbuff made into a watch cap though I have used a fleece cap as well. In colder conditions either an old GoLite Snow Cap or a down Balaclava made by Down Works of Santa Cruz.Oct 15, 2007 at 2:48 pm #1405549

Above 45 I use the hood of my Cocoon hoody and sometimes layer with a light fleece cap.
Below that, I use a Cocoon balaclava with my hoody.
REALLY cold and I'm usually using a hooded bag.Oct 15, 2007 at 8:09 pm #1405592

Headgear, who needs it.
That's why you make your own quilt that already has a head enclosure.Nov 14, 2007 at 8:52 pm #1409157

On the colder nights of my trips I had the hood of my synthetic jacket (REI Gossamer), a synthetic beanie, and a buff over my face.
I'm a big fan of hooded jackets with quilts, great combo.Nov 15, 2007 at 5:35 am #1409174

two relevant things about night-time headwear for quilt users:
– try to re-use what you already have anyway.
– be able to create a non-interrupted layer of insulation around head and neck, like a balaclava does, with the option of covering mouth and nose too.
A balaclava is perfect but no so versatile during the day. For not too cold temps, I usually take a fleece cap and a buff. For colder weather, I add a powerstretch balaclava or, colder yet, a polarguard or down one.Nov 15, 2007 at 5:42 am #1409177
